Buying Selling Shares when markets closed


Recommended Posts

Hi, 
As we now have Easter holidays, I was wondering how shares are executed for London Stock Exchange and NYSE?
I've noticed that NYSE has pre-market and post market offerings, does this only apply to week days and not weekends/holidays?
If yes, then I suppose I cannot place a market order but a limit order in these periods instead and order is queued, when and at what price it it executed ? 

Will the same apply for LSE?

Sorry about all the questions, but thanks in advance.

Hi, yes IG shuts all markets at 10pm tonight with most opening Sunday evening. You can put an order in before market open but over any weekend and especially a long weekend you will likely get slippage (maybe even in your favour). (see hours link below). With current market uncertainty and volatility probably very risky though the weekend indices will open on Saturday if needing a hedge.

Hi, Thanks Caseynotes. If an order is placed pre or post market periods, does it get executed immediately at the current price (on yahoo I can see pre or post prices for US stock) ?

Hi, if I remember correctly the pre and post periods on the exchange are for institutional orders but IG makes their own market with many of the larger US stocks providing extended hours for those marked 'All Sessions'.

The thing is that with near 200,000 clients IG is big enough to constantly gauge buy/sell interest and so are able to provide a weekend market.

200,000 retail punters versus one or two big institutions or a central bank - no contest.

Hi,

If I am trading in stocks (equity)  as a swing trader (1-5 days) in normal hours and set my stops (limit and loss), and left them open overnight can they trigger in out of hours (pre/post markets) ? 
 

Is this the normal thing to do when buying / selling equity as during out of hours stocks can become a lot more volatile and pose more risk?

Thanks

    • Just recently, I wrote an article about how a Solana blockchain art project (Artrade) is helping artists raise their earnings and even further transforming their physical works into RWA essentially NFTs. With that in mind, I came across Rarible, a marketplace that focuses on digital art and NFTs and the similarities of the platforms caught my attention. Rarible allows artists to sell their creations as NFTs, essentially digital certificates of ownership and cuts out middlemen, connecting artists directly with buyers. Beyond trading, Rarible offers a somewhat user-friendly interface for creating NFTs, even for beginners.   The platform unlike Artrade is built on the Ethereum blockchain and uses its own token, RARI, for governance and rewarding active users. In the long term they seem building with the goal of becoming a DAO in the future While it’s still early days, I have no doubt Rarible offers a unique approach to buying, selling, and creating digital art, and the recent listing on Bitget will further expose it to new communities and potential investors.     Do you think RARI's approach will be sustainable as a marketplace for NFTs?
    • Soybeans Elliott Wave Analysis  Function - Trend  Mode - Impulse  Structure - Impulse for (5)  Position - Wave 1 of (5) Direction - Wave 2 of (5) Details - Wave 1 of (5) completing with a diagonal. Wave 2 bounce is emerging before the price turns downside for 3 of (5). Invalidation now at 1226’6. Not much has changed since the last update.   Soybean Price Analysis: Elliott Wave Perspective Signals Continued Downward Trend   In the realm of commodity trading, Soybean has recently undergone a significant downturn, marking a nearly 7% drop since March 21st. This decline appears to be part of a broader trend that commenced back in June 2022. However, before this recent descent, there was a brief period of respite characterized by a corrective bounce starting in late February.    Delving deeper into the price action, an Elliott Wave analysis sheds light on the intricacies of Soybean's movement. The daily chart's decline since June 2022 reveals a corrective pattern, delineated into waves A-B-C, as denoted by blue annotations.   The initial wave, labeled as Blue Wave 'A', terminated at 1249 in October 2023, exhibiting a distinct diagonal pattern. Subsequently, a modest rebound ensued, marked by Blue Wave 'B', which concluded at 1398 in November 2023. However, the ascendancy was short-lived as the bears regained control, manifesting in the ongoing development of Blue Wave 'C'. This wave, evolving into an impulse wave, has currently progressed to wave (5) following the completion of wave (4) in March 2024.   Zooming in on the H4 chart, a granular analysis reveals the sub-waves of wave (5). Wave 1 of (5) concluded with a diagonal structure, followed by a corrective phase as the price undergoes a temporary upside correction to complete wave 2. Despite uncertainties regarding whether wave 2 has fully concluded or will undergo another upward leg, the overarching trajectory remains clear – a downward break is anticipated to continue wave 3 of (5), leading to further downside movement.   In light of this analysis, the prevailing sentiment favors sellers, who continue to assert dominance over the commodity market. As long as the price remains below 1226’6, the outlook remains skewed towards further downside potential, with the possibility of reaching the lowest price point since November 2020.   In conclusion, the Elliott Wave perspective offers valuable insights into Soybean's price dynamics, signaling a continued bearish trajectory in the near term. While short-term fluctuations may occur, the broader trend suggests that sellers are likely to maintain control, shaping the commodity's price action in the foreseeable future.   Technical Analyst : Sanmi Adeagbo   Source : Tradinglounge.com get trial here!
